Trespass kills: its impact on a better, safer railway
Show Notes

In this first podcast about trespass, I talk with with Oliver Bratton, Director Network Strategy and Operations, and Louise McNally, Trespass Prevention Lead, at Network Rail; and Inspector Becky Warren, of the British Transport Police, about the human, safety and operational impacts that trespass can have on the railway.

They talk about the impacts of trespass on the railway.  Its human costs, as a result of fatalities and life-changing injuries.  On the family and friends of those whose lives are altered or taken, and on those who witness the traumatic results of trespass, be they railway staff, passengers, the public, or the police who have to deal with the aftermath.  They also talk of the additional costs and potential dangers added by the delays that trespass causes.
